Vanderbilt University enjoys the benefits of Webfood

Vanderbilt University has installed CBORD’s online ordering system at a popular on-campus eatery. The two kiosks, which fit inside a Jack Daniel’s distillery barrel, brought in $115,000 in revenue for the Tennessee college in just two months.

Online and kiosk-based ordering service gaining popularity with CS Gold users

Ithaca, NY–Webfood, the online ordering system from CBORD, was recently installed at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN.

A long-time user of CBORD’s CS Gold campus card system, Vanderbilt uses these systems together, processing payments for Webfood orders through CS Gold.

Vanderbilt has installed two Webfood self-order kiosks at CT West, a popular barbeque eatery on-campus. The kiosks were specially designed to fit inside a Jack Daniel’s distillery barrel display, in keeping with the facility’s Western theme.

In their first two months of operation, the kiosks processed more than 18,500 orders, bringing in more than $115,000 in revenue. Both students and staff are pleased with the system.

“The vast majority of students we interviewed found the Webfood system easy to use,” says Alan Baker, Systems Manager at Vanderbilt Dining. “The kiosks have processed more than 350 orders a day, and we expect these numbers to continue to rise. Webfood has provided Vanderbilt a profitable, viable way to increase sales and customer satisfaction while maintaining efficiency.”
